Playing Mandy Moore's Parents Think Her 'This Is Us' Character Has 'Issues' -- See The Hilarious Text Exchange

Mandy Moore's parents are big fans of their daughter's NBC drama, This Is Us, but aren't so supportive of her character Rebecca's behavior on this week's episode.

The 32-year-old actress shared a few text messages she received from her mom and dad after the episode, which flashed back to Rebecca and Jack's wedding and their struggles to maintain a healthy marriage. Both of Moore's parents were not thrilled with how Rebecca treated her husband, Jack. "Mom and dad know how to keep it real," Moore captioned a screen grab of the texts. "Thanks guys?"

"Great show tonight Mimi!!! Pretty heavy!!! Wow! Xoxoxo," her mother's message reads. "Although Rebecca has issues, doesn't she? Hopefully she is made to look better in future episodes. Right now, Jack is the superhero."

He added: "We loved the episode. Xoxo."

While Jack and Rebecca's fate still hangs in the balance on This Is Us, their onscreen chemistry is hard to top. Moore spoke with ET in January at the Elle Women in TV event about playing Milo Ventimiglia's onscreen wife on the beloved TV series.

"He's such a special guy, it's really not hard to have to just love him," she confessed. "I feel very safe. I feel very, like, protected with him."
